This is going to be a VERY slow holiday weekend for Hollywood, as the only wide (ish) new release is hitting less than 1,000 screens.
Blumhouse is lowballing expectations for “Don’t Let Go,” their African American headliner driven supernatural thriller.
I say it’ll manage more than the $4 million they’re expecting. Reviews are mixed. I call it a good bad movie, well acted, keeps you engrossed. Or maybe that was just me. Might it manage $6?
“Angel has Fallen” will win it all with a take in the $13-15 day.
“Overcomer” added screens and may not $5-6.
Not enough to crack the top 2, but found money for a low budget faith based drama.
If “Don’t Let Go” managed $4 or $5, it will knock “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” out of the top ten.
But again, crowds will be light. If you’ve missed it, catch it now. No waiting.
